Containers and microservices have increased the speed at which software is put into production. They have also increased scalability, especially for Cloud-native applications. Agile development and CI/CD practices have been instrumental in making these new application modernization methods effective.
For production applications, i.e. once the application code and enhancements have been released through the CD process, Enterprise Observability (EO) and Machine Learning (ML) are extremely effective in detecting and isolating application issues for SRE, DevOps and Ops team in production.
Enterprise Observability is the combination of Metrics, Events, Traces and Logs into a rich mosaic of rich contextual data. EO also provides precise information at 1 second intervals, with no sampling. Machine Learning learns from that rich contextual data to expose potential issues and enable alerts for those issues.
